president's message SteVe SullIVan aGC of DC PreSIDent GIlforD CorPor atIon Summer has arrived after a long hard winter. Construction is picking up steam. Nationally and locally thousands of construction jobs have been added to our construction industry. January construction statistics are more favorable than a year ago. Construction spending is increasing locally. Nationally, public construction spending has increased for the first time since 2009. More good news. A recent AGC survey states that 80 percent of construction companies nationally plan to expand their payrolls in 2015. However, we all need to be on lookout for inflation as this could be a result of the increased spending. We enjoyed a successful Public Owners Forum which took place at the Westin in Georgetown on April 28. Our panel included the Navy, Department of Veterans Affairs, NAVFC, AOC and Department of General Services with the District of Columbia. This forum gave our GC community a good update on upcoming work for 2015 and beyond. We also offered an Infrastructure Forum for May 16. Please see our schedule of events on the AGC Metro website. This event was well attended and is one of the only active panel presentations to focus on Infrastructure work in the Metro Area. Don't miss a fun networking event - Spring Fling on May 28 at the "Rooftop" at 300 New Jersey Avenue. There is a lot going on at AGC and we encourage our members to get involved and attend these events - they are all geared to help our construction businesses. A recent AGC survey states that 80 percent of construction companies nationally plan to expand their payrolls in 2015. However, we all need to be on lookout for inflation as this could be a result of the increased spending. www.agcofdc.org | Summer 2015 7 http://www.agcofdc.org
